Default Re: How long do you cut your 3/8 ribbon to make military braids for flip flops?

Take that measurement and tripple it, and then I always add a little extra(like 1/2 the original measurement). I do the same with flip flops, measure from strap tip, around the toe and to the other strap tip. The 3x length is usually perfect, but sometimes to get a print to show better I make the braid loose so the extra is really good for this. HTH
That helps a ton! Thank you .
